I have a pretty good excuse for my utter lack of blog posting for several YEARS!….I’ve been living life to the fullest in every possible way! This photo was taken from a fabulous short break to Mexico in November! Don and I moved back to Las Vegas in May 2015 and have never been happier – we consider this ‘home’ and hope very much to stay put once and for all! I continue to be active although I think my triathlon days may officially have moved into retirement! I still love to ride my bicycle and run but i’ve enjoyed branching out into other fitness challenges such as Tough Mudder and more recently Orange Theory – check it out if you haven’t heard about it – it’s an amazing workout!

I’m excited about 2017, we are hiking and biking in Argentina in the Spring (along with wine tasting in Mendoza!), we have fitness, health and work items on our bucket list and hope to tick them all off.

I hope your 2017 brings you much happiness and excitement and that you continue to live your lives to the fullest!
Ellen.

Training in California!

Training in California!     There is no question that triathlon training in California is as near perfect as it can possibly be.  Rolling hills, flat straight aways for interval work, ocean swims (brrrr!) and warm but not too hot conditions….wow, how lucky am I to now live in one of the best places in […]

March Maddness in Chicago

I’m not talking about Basketball (coz I’m British and not really into all that!) but what’s mad is the crazy weather we are having in Chicago!  It’s been in the 70’s all week and tomorrow marks my first outdoor ride in Chicago for 2012…..BRING IT ON!!   May the rain hold off until I’m done riding….pretty […]

Happy New Year, 2012 here we come!
